Windsor Law alumni leaders in the legal profession

Across the country, Windsor Law alums like Diana Miles ’88 and Dan Pinnington ‘91 are attaining prominence in leadership roles within the legal profession. 

Miles was recently appointed CEO of the Law Society of Ontario by Treasurer and President, Paul Schabas. 

She joined the Law Society in 2001 and has assumed multiple leadership roles within the organization before her appointment as CEO. 

No objections to this proposal

Windsor Law students know that staff and faculty at the law school are always here to help; even when that involves orchestrating an elaborate engagement proposal from across the country.

It was, therefore, no surprise that Career Services Coordinator, Anna DeCia Gualteri was delighted to help when Windsor Law alum and Vancouver based lawyer, Sameer Kamboj (‘14) reached out to her for help with his plans to propose to his law school sweetheart, Cynthia Lam (‘14).
